I work subjectively now, though I have worked many different ways.
I may work abstractly starting with a subject or idea as a point of departure. I may work non-objectively without any preconceived idea of what I want to paint. I will start with a color, shape or line and then respond to what is on the canvas. I will develop it in an aesthetic way to create a feeling, mood or statement. I think of these paintings as visual music and of myself as a composer.
